America’s humpday cure is quickly becoming Australia’s Thursday treat. Wavy Wednesdays are back courtesy of the ASAP Mob, and the hits just keep on coming, this time in the form of new A$AP Ferg and A$AP Twelvyy. While this week’s releases might fail to match last week’s stellar Danny Brown cameo, it is without a doubt a strong showing from the Harlem collective.
Ferg delivers the standout of the releases, jumping on a track with A$AP Marty to deliver I Don’t Care. The track itself radiates a very 90’s-esque vibe, with heavy piano laden throughout. Ferg himself delivers a more laid back flow, taking a slower and more mellow approach, as opposed to his usual frenetic lyrical delivery. Marty delivers a solid hook and chorus, with all the elements only combining for yet another example as to why Ferg needs to deliver his upcoming project Always Strive And Prosper sooner rather than later, which is set to feature none other than Grimes, Future, Schoolboy Q and Missy Elliott among others.
Again is the second track of the week, with Twelvyy bringing along another Mob member who is often resigned to the shadows; A$AP Ant. While both MC’s are often deemed to be hit or miss in their releases, on this occasion they have teamed up to deliver a solid track. The brooding and morbid beat proves to be the perfect backdrop for the duo’s lyrics:
“Get hit with the northern star
Wilin’ out with an open charge
Fuck a rat, I have court tomorrow
But I better get off tomorrow
‘Nough time to watch Oprah, y’all Man,
I’m young, black, and focused, dawg”
A$AP Mob is continuing to set the standards high for weekly releases. Wednesday is fast becoming my favourite day of the week.
